A HOME THAT’S equally beautiful on both the inside and outside can be hard to find. Oftentimes the exterior can be impressive but the interior less so, and vice versa. 

This isn’t the case with Burecho, a five-bedroom property located in the plush south Dublin suburb of Rathmichael.

Located on a private avenue off the Falls Road, Burecho spans 5,188 sq ft. It’s positioned in the centre of a one-acre site, meaning there is an abundance of privacy and peaceful views for residents.

Built in 2000, Burecho proves that good things really do come in twos, with a self contained two-bed mews house located on the grounds too.

The larger main property is double fronted with two bay windows at the front. Inside, the double-height reception hall boasts a dual staircase leading to a gallery.

Space is no issue at this Tudor-style residence, with a bright and airy living room to the immediate left upon entering the hallway. An impressive Inglenook brick fireplace rightfully demands attention.
